You guys are so lucky, to have the ability to know where every wire goes and what it controls. I trust you made good schematic diagrams for future reference

That said I have attached a couple of photos of our TV cabinet, so you can see what I started with and ended up with.. I installed a 12 volt - 5 amp, DC power supply to run the in-motion Satellite Dish, along with a new AC electrical outlet. the final product is the 3o inch flat screen installed and working beautifully

Wb2IVU - we are lucky to know about what we have put in, but I can promise you that we have not tracked everything down -nor will we probably know where everything is since are not changing out sll the wiring.
(But it looks like we were definitely luckier than you! )

The electrical outlet above the passenger area is now completed:


All we need now is the satellite dish & controller!

We decided to replace the round speakers with 6x9 three driver KICKERS. Sound vastly improved. We're 60-era rockers so when Steppenwolf comes on I can crank it up a bit...need a subwoofer somewhere but after replacing the jack-knife couches I've no room for that anymore.

Generator Tune-Up

We had issues with our generator while we were in QZ this year and the Vendor wasn't able to get it fixed while we were there - so one project this month is to tune-up the generator.

Here is a photo of the "dropped" generator.



There are a few more photos on my blog.

I was fortunate. I was able to run a heavy dose of SeaFoam thru our genset per instructions found in the archives disconnecting the hose from the main tank and dropping an extension into a container of new gas & SeaFoam. No more surging...starts instantly. Changed oil & filter. I see I'd have to DROP mine out the same way if I had worse problems. I continue to be rather lucky...

Can you supply the link that you mentioned in the archives? I have no idea where to find the archives.

ARCHIVES available in the search window on the header banner. I put "SeaFoam generator" in there but couldn't find the same thing I was talking about...although I found my old entry.

What I recall is have a 3 foot length of rubber fuel line available. Disconnect the fuel hose from the genset at the fuel pump. Attach the new line to genset and drop the line into a container of one part SeaFoam to eight parts gasoline and run genset for 20 mins with a load. When empty re-attatch the fuel line and test genset with load.

I put in 50/50 mix and made lotsa smoke and stalled the genset. Too much SeaFoam. Re-attatched the fuel lines and ran the mixture out...still smoking. Now it runs much better, smoother and starts instantly whether still or while driving. This would mean my fuel was aging in the genset carb, and/or the carb had deposits that SeaFoam dissolved...which is its purpose. However if you have nasty clogging chemicals may not work and removal/repair of carb is the only solution...something I have to do on wife's mtcyl soon as she doesn't ride it enough and one of the carbs is clogged requiring removal.

Since you've already dropped the genset maybe now would be the time to do thorough servicing of the unit. Carb cleaning, slip-ring cleaning, etc. since you're past the hard part (removal).

I run the genset every month for an hour...sometimes that is insufficient with aging gas...but as we are gone 6 months/year I don't always do it. Most of the time it only runs while traveling.

What was your genset doing that prompted this latest action? Oh, I jus' read your blog...nevermind.

EDIT: Here's a thread I recognized...
http://www.irv2.com/forums/f54/onan-...ng-169663.html

Looks like you're gonna get to the bottom of it all soon!

Decorator Item- Curtain Tie-Backs

I found a nice touch for holding our front curtain tie-backs in place...


I used a cabinet drawer knob!

Dish Antenna

I have added another purchase to our "Project List"



This project will be something that we will do next spring since the weather is starting to turn.

The main reason for waiting is two-fold:
  • I have a few other projects that need to be completed before we start the Dish satellite
  • I should have a receiver to make sure it works correctly once we install it!
